In 1994, My wife and I moved to Ottawa from Montreal to settle and raise a family, we have been sharing our love for Ottawa with clients ever since, particularly those who are new to the region. I love the size of Ottawa and that it is bilingual (as I am). It is big enough to have the amenities of a big city, restaurants and entertainment, but small enough that people are friendly and calm. You can be in a trendy downtown area one minute, and in the walking-hiking-biking trails of the Gatineau Hills in no time. The city has something to offer everyone.
Before pursuing my passion for real estate, I was a wedding and portrait photographer. I believe my training gave me a sharp eye for visual details when I’m helping a client buy a home or investment property or to prepare a home for sale. I love pointing out all of the features of a home and how they will benefit the buyer, the things that make one home more appealing than another. Most clients can sense a “connection” to their preferred home, and I like to explain to them why.
The biggest rewards of a real estate career include my client’s excitement when they find the right home for them, when I negotiate the best deal for them, but mostly when I get a referral. It’s confirmation of a job well done for clients who are so happy with my service that they can’t wait to have me to help their friends in the same way.
